During a recent visit by RCPsych President, Professor Wendy Burn, earlier this year where she heard about our Youth Service which sees people between the ages of 14 and 25 Wendy said that we ‘Basically they tore up the rule book and asked young people what they wanted. The result is a very interesting service which is truly patient centred.’
